Turner prize-winning artist and Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen’s epic portrait of London’s Year 3 pupils has been extended until the end of January 2021.

Some of the schools supported by London Diocesan Board for Schools took part in this vast artwork, described by the Tate as ‘a glimpse of our capital’s future and a hopeful portrait of a generation to come‘. 

Children photographed for the exhibition will now be in Year 5. The Tate said, “We had a number of school groups booked in to see their school photo and the exhibition as a whole, but due to Covid we had to close and school groups have, of course, not been able to visit. We have extended the exhibition over the school holiday and encourage children to visit with their parents or carers.”

Many congratulations to the schools who were picked to take part. A great opportunity for people to see the children who will shape the future of London. The exhibition is due to close on 31 January 2021.

Update – as London is now in Tier 3 Tate Britain is currently closed.
